Jezebel ~ 1951
Jezebel was the Phonecian wife of Ahab, King of Biblical Israel from around 871 to about 852 BC. She was also the daughter of Ethbaal, king of Sidon. Jezebel worshiped Satan under the name of the pagan god Baal . She was instrumental in leading Israel into moral corruption and idol worship.
Jezebel was entirely evil. Both Elijah and Elisha laid more blame on Jezebel than on Ahab for the persecution of God's prophets during their reign. Elijah prophesied that Jezebel would be torn apart by the dogs of Jezreel in 1 Kings 21:23. BTW Jezebel's daughter, Athaliah, later became Queen of Judah, and she too was proven evil.
So, one day Elijah throws down with the Prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel and ultimately kills them all. At this point Jezebel vows to kill Elijah, so Elijah must flee for his life.
Meantime, Jehu gets anointed to become the future King of Israel. He is instructed to destroy the family of Ahab, to avenge the murder of the Lord's prophets, and to avenge the deaths of all the other people destroyed by Jezebel.
Jehu sees Jezebel in the high palace window, and he calls upon the people in the palace to throw her ass down, and so they tossed her out of the window. Exactly as Elijah had prophesied, the dogs tore her body to pieces.
In Revelation 2 Jezebel's name is used to represent the female aspect of an important demonic principality spirit. She is described there as a false prophetess who seeks to lure Christians into idolatrous practices. This is the only place in the NT where her name appears. The entire story of Jezebel can be found in 1 Kings, chapters 16, 18, 19, 21, and 2 Kings chapter 9.
Her Royal Seal was unearthed in Israel in 2007.

Note from Jehu:
Good work Babba. Now interesting that Ethball, king of the Sidonians was a direct descendent of Ham via Canaan Gen 10:15 15 Canaan was the father of Sidon his firstborn, [a] and of the Hittites.
Now Noah had cursed Canaan, Ham's firstborn son for the fact that Ham had laughed at his father's nakedness. (This was a high spiritual crime, in that Ham was channeling Satan) But Noah would not curse his own son...that was a reflection on himself, so he cursed Ham's son Canaan, and Canaan's firstborn was Sidon. So Jezebel is a direct lineage to the curse, and is a Nephelim, a person that is not demon possesed, but fallen angels, including Satan can move through them.
See book of Job when God asks Satan where have you been? Satan responds, I have been traveling in the earth, and up and down in it. In other words bouncing around in human channels in order to accomplish his purposes.
(Think of Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mau, etc.) So Jezebel represents the fallen angel that is assigned to thwart the people of God, she is the designated spirit to fight the prophetic, or the prophets.
